This list is fine for reporting problems.  It's been a little quiet
since the automake 1.5 release (I think Tom may be taking a holiday...),
and if reports don't seem to get a reply it's usually worth checking if
anything has changed and reposting if not: there are no full time
developers, though some put in a _lot_ of work...

If you are able, a test case (along the lines of those in
automake/tests/*.test) which demonstrates this problems would be very

To clarify: this is on solaris, using solaris make?  Your message
initially implies that you use gnu make, and then refers to solaris

Assuming the problem is as you describe, my feeling is that your patch
is only suitable if no less hacky solution can be found.  This is a
fairly weird thing for make to do: I've not heard of such behaviour
(though my experience is mainly limited to linux).  Is there any way of
turning this behaviour of make off?
